Can You Live Without Wine?

After my last reinstall of Mint 17,  I never got around to installing Wine. There is only one piece of Windows software I ever ran under Wine, and that was the Windows 2000 version of MS Paint.

Hoping to break my dependence on MS Paint, I went searching for a native Linux paint program that would give me the same functionality. I think I may have found it, in a piece of software called XPaint.



I often have need to do a quick line drawing, and MS Paint always made that easy. XPaint seems to give me  much the same functions as MS Paint. So with this software, perhaps I can indeed live without Wine!
